A beloved village shop and post office in the heart of the Sulby community is set to shut in March.

Caley’s General Stores has been up for sale since 2018, but no buyers have yet come forward, and owners Graham and Carolyn Garrett will now close the shop to seek new challenges.

He says “it’s the end of an era, but the shop will leave a legacy, and that’s due to’ Mr Sulby’, Raymond Caley. He and his family were the hub of this village.”
